Iran PressIran news: Commemorating the Resistance Day in Iran, on May 25, Brigadier General Esmail Qaani said one of the good role models of resistance against enemies is the people of Dezful of Khuzestan, southwestern Iran, who, through their resistance, supported the Iranian force against the Iraqi Baathist regime's 8-year war on Iran. 

General Qaani pointed out that Resistance Day in Iran is not confined behind the borders of the country and has inspired other nations of the world.

The reason for naming May 25, Resistance Day of Dezful is due to the people of this city's resistance against the Iraqi Baathist regime's non-stop bombardments during the imposed war. 

The people of Dezful did not evacuate the city but kept on their routine life despite the Iraqi regime's bombardments.

The Iranian city was shelled by rockets more than 200 times and was 20,000 times by bullets.

Dezful was at the forefront of the Iranian cities against the Iraqi invasion.
